Health Minister calls for participation in funeral of Tallan massacre victims

SANAA, March 13 (YPA)- Minister of the Public Health and Population Dr. Taha al-Mutawkil on Wednesday called for a broad participation in the funeral of the victims of Tallan massacre to be held in the capital Sanaa on Thursday, March 14.

In a statement he issued earlier the day, the minister held the United Nations responsible for the worsening conditions of the wounded in need of medical evacuation out of Yemen.

Dr. al-Mutawakil said “the aggression countries (Saudi-led coalition) have prevented the import of dialysis devices, which led to the aggravation of the suffering of renal failure patients.”

He added that he invited the United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator to attend the funeral of the victims of Tallan massacre, which was committed by Saudi-led coalition warplanes last Sunday in Kushar district of Hajjah and left 23 dead and 20 wounded, all from children and women.
